Biomedical engineering students gathered in the Student Union Ballroom Feb. 28 for talks and a poster session during the sixth annual Student Research Expo.
The event, sponsored by W.L. Gore & Associates, began with a speech from BME alumna Jessi Gamboa Crosby of SynCardia Tucson, and moved on to a poster session at which students presented their results, research and methods.
"We want to congratulate all students who presented at the expo this year and thank them for their hard work and time preparing to be a part of this annual event," said Andrea Anduaga, senior academic advisor for the biomedical engineering graduate program. "Thanks also to the faculty who mentored and supported these students. They are so grateful for your guidance and encouragement."
The event was topped off with a keynote speech by Valerie Cross, product specialist for W.L. Gore & Associates.
"Thank you to both of our speakers, and a huge thank you to W.L. Gore & Associates for sponsoring this awesome event," Anduaga said. "We urge all students to consider presenting research at next year’s event."
